The Amazon is rich in cultural and biological diversity. Using this potential to create wealth and rising incomes for the local population without harming the evironment is one approach to promote sustainable development of the Amazon.

Some of this wealth can be seen on the sociobiodiversity exhibit at the Amazon-Bonn event. The Amazon provides a vast variety 0f ingredients and products used in value chains of the foods, health and cosmetics sector, as well as arts and handicrafts.

Yet, much of the potential of these resources has not been sufficiently recognized or even discovered and transformed into economic opportunities for the local population. Government, communities, companies and science work together to develop this vast potential.
